Power Restoration Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my power out but my neighbor’s is on?
When we restore the primary lines, residents without damage to the lines serving their homes are restored. Home that have limbs on their service lines (which may be in another area) or other damage such as a broken pole, will not have power.
Why don’t I see trucks working In my neighborhood?
The electrical system originated from central equipment in a substation. From there, lines run in the most efficient way to serve residents. This means the lines serving you may come from various direction in your neighborhood. Crews may be working on your problem, even if you can’t see them.
Why are big trees still down on my street?
City workers and contractors are working as quickly as possible to clear streets. The volume of trees down along with the size of the trees themselves are slowing progress.
How long does it take to restore a broken power pole?
Approximately 2.5-12 hours depending on damage and amount of debris surrounding it. This could require between 3-8 linemen.
